Wish we had more time to explore, allow at least 3 hours. Even the teenagers really enjoyed this place. Many interactive/learning activities that kept them engaged. Glass blowing/crafting is fun for kids but doesn't last long at all. If they make a glass blowing project all they literally do is blow down a tube. Older kids can actually to glass... More

The new areas are open and just so very interesting , bright, and filled with light from the perfectly placed skylights.

Beautiful museum. Many hot glass shows; make certain to attend one. Pricey gift shop and most of the items for sale are not made on site. Loved that you can take a free bus from the museum to the quaint little town or the Rockwell Museum.

We were there last week and we enjoyed seeing the history of glass. We watched the glass blowers make a catipus. The glass blowers would take a design that people sent to them, then see if it was viable to make and to show people how to make glass.

FABULOUS collection of glassware dating back to ancient Egypt. This museum is far more interesting than I imagined, and the facility is beautiful

The CMoG has been a wonderful destination for visitors for decades, but its recent renovations have made it even better. The theatre where glassblowers show off their skills is quite an experience. The history of glass comes to life & a new building will soon be open for modern glass art. The gift shop is perhaps the best gift shop... More

Thank you for taking the time to revisit us. It's great to hear that you took the time to experience all that we offer in the galleries and demonstrations. I hope you took the time to make your own glass too, after being inspired by the gaffers and 35 centuries of objects. Remember, you can also do some shopping online... More

This is a great place to visit! Lots on history of glass. Don't miss the demo of glass blowing in the auditorium. You can submit an idea for a design and if your idea is selected, you get the finished piece as a prize! We also had fun making our own glass pendants, one of several items that are available...

We made the trip from CT just to see this museum, and it was worth it. We had our 10 year old nephew with us, and he enjoyed it as much as we did. There are so many incredible exhibits showing every conceivable style and use of glass. The glass blowing demonstrations were fascinating, and the "make your own glass"... More

Watched a glass blowing exhibit; very informative and interesting. Lots of other exhibits at various times, but we weren't able to catch others. The glass art museum was amazing. Some... More
